SCOPUS Affiliation Details - for Bournemouth University

Clearly there is room for ambiguity and error, however, SCOPUS have developed the SCOPUS Affiliation Identifier which distinguishes between affiliations that have similar names by assigning each affiliation in SCOPUS a unique number and grouping together all of the documents affiliated with an organization.
